Hot Pink and Tweed

I am head over heels in love with this outfit. J.Crew is definitely killing it with all their new stuff and I am loving every single thing I saw in their catalog. Unfortunately, those particular pieces were clearly out of my price range. I decided to take the plunge and find ways to recreate this outfit using items that I already have in my closet.

J.Crew's version:
Jacket: Confetti tweed jacket
Pants: Minnie pant in stretch twill
Shirt: Keeper chambray shirt
Purse: Edie purse
Shoes: Drea leopard patent peep-toe pumps

What I am wearing:
Jacket: AT chunky knit tweed jacket - size 0P (still available in 00P online)
Pants: MTTM via - size 25
Shirt: Hollister *old* - size XS
Wedges: Merona Milena suede wedges

Since the jacket was pink, the version created by J.Crew looks a lot more feminine than mine. However, I am still liking the end result. Best of all, it’s so much more affordable than the J.Crew one. I actually have tried on the confetti tweed jacket (see it on me here) and the fit was very boxy on me. I hope you enjoy this outfit. It’s been a long week and I am so ready for the weekend. On an unrelated note, who’s shopping the Marni collection at H&M today?


  1. Really cool outfit, Sydney! These jeans really pack a punch color-wise. With the shirt and wedge pumps, it is even more a chic outfit. You look great!

  2. Love love love this outfit! I love the hot pink pants with the more subtle tweed! - xoxo

  3. I like what you have recreated and stayed true to your style! Love the hot pink pants!

  4. I like your outfit more than the JCrew. The pink pants look great paired with the tweed jacket.

  5. you did a great remake, sydney! i love the 2nd photo a lot. you did even better than the model in some ways

  6. Loving the pants!! A pair of bright pants/bottoms is definitely on my spring wishlist =)

  7. Girl, you totally nailed it. Good for you for finding the items already in your closet!!!!!

  8. I like your outfit a lot more. J.Crew's marketing is superb, but orange jeans are way too loud. I personally do not know anyone who would wear orange, besides a collegiate sweater/tee.


  9. Fabulous look!! xo,

  10. Absolutely loving the pink pants!

  11. Lovely! I really like this look too. You did a wonderful job.

  12. I love those pants on you Sydney, what a great color!

  13. i'm a petite asian girl myself, and am always interesting in seeing how others pull off fashion-forward looks! you pulled those pants off so well! Please come check out our new online jewelry shop where everything is under $20! Too Much xx

  14. I like it! It's more casual than J. Crew's version, but I think the main difference is that you went with brighter colors.
